Section: Overall Objectives
The aim of the CARTE research team is to take into account adversity in computations, which is implied by actors whose behaviors are unknown or unclear. We call this notion adversary computation.
The project combines two approaches, and we think that their combination will be fruitful. The first one is the analysis of the behavior of a wide-scale system, using tools coming from both Continuous Computation Theory and Game Theory. The second approach is to build defenses with tools coming rather from logic, rewriting and, more generally, from Programming Theory.
The activities of the CARTE team are organized around three research actions:
